Caught in the far East in General, 630 thousand tons of salmon — how many of that number have reached the consumer, and how much is dumped and destroyed, impossible to calculate, but judging by the fact that there is no collapse of the prices on red fish and caviar has not happened in the European part of the country far Eastern fish was not so much. On the Kamchatka Peninsula, which gave the highest figures, tons of salmon rotted — they were strewn roads, forests and fields.
